We hope to be going out around January to commence work and as yet have found it quite difficult to find what we're looking for on the Internet.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

... sorry to be boring, but you have got all your licences haven't you?

Have you tried using google to find a tool hire shop - around here they also hire out acro props etc.

(or I have some for sale but then I'm probably too far away)

Hi and a warm welcome to the Spanish forum on BE. Myself and Fred James are the moderators for the Spanish forums whilst BEVS moderates Europe. Moderators are there to ensure that the site runs smoothly within the rules of BE. This is so that members gain the information that they are looking for and find their experiences on the forums to be friendly and worthwhile.

Problems and complaints should always be addressed to a moderator who will look into the matter and deal with it efficiently and fairly. Our members who post in the Spain Forums are usually friendly and helpful with a wealth of knowledge about the issues of living in Spain. I hope that you enjoy your time participating in the forums.

Please let me know if you need any further help.

Rosemary

There are 8 Hardware stores (Ferratererias) in Elda. Any one of these should be able to supply or advise you where to obtain whatever you require. Better to ask a neighbour's recommendation for builders.



NB: I would avoid any English builders you may find. In my experience, most are cowboys.

Hi welcome

Good luck with your new house in Spain , I am in Agost about 25 min from Elda , there is a great builders merchant here , he can deliver larger items to Elda for 40€ delivery charge ( I asked him this morning after seeing your post )

If you require timber beams and rustic traditional windows there is also a great factory here too.

Cheers Tony
